THIS LISTING IS FOR AN ANTIQUE FLAT TOP TRUNK.

ITS WIDER FROM LEFT TO RIGHT THAN MOST FLAT TOP TRUNKS. IT HAS AN ORIGINAL TRAVEL STICKER ON IT. ITS FROM AROUND THE 1890 ERA. ABOUT 120 YEARS OLD.

THE ORIGINAL OWNER WAS FROM GREECE AND THEIR NAME MALAVAZOS IS PAINTED ON ONE SIDE. THEY IMMAGRATED FROM GREECE TO PORTSMOUTH OHIO. THEY OWNED THE LASALLE HOTEL AND THE CAMEO RESTAURANT IN PORTSMOUTH. THE NAME "MALAVAZOS" PAINTED ON THE SIDE GIVES IT A NICE NOSTALGIC LOOK.

THIS TRUNK IS IN EXCELLENT SHAPE FOR ITS AGE. ALL THE WOOD IS IN GREAT SHAPE AND ITS ORIGINAL CANVAS COVERING IS ALSO VERY GOOD. BOTH ORIGINAL TRAYS ARE STILL ON THE INSIDE OF THE TRUNK. ALL IT WOULD EVER NEED IS NEW LEATHER HANDLES IF SOMEONE PREFERS HAVING NEW HANDLES. SOME OWNERS PREFER THE WORN-OUT HANDLES AS THEY LIKE THE LOOK OF THE LEATHER

THIS IS ONE OF THE BEST-PRESERVED TRUNKS I HAVE EVER RAN INTO. IT'S ALSO SOLID. IT WAS A MORE EXPENSIVE TRUNK BACK IN THE DAY WHEN IT WAS MADE.

The Dimensions are:
Left to Right = 37 ½ inches
Front to Back = 22 ¾ inches
Top to Bottom = 24 ½ inches.

IT WOULD MAKE A NICE COFFEE TABLE.

I RESTORE TRUNKS AND I HAVE WAY TO MANY SO I AM GETTING RID OF SOME I HAVE NOT RESTORED. PLEASE LEAVE YOUR NAME AND NUMBER AND A GOOD TIME TO CALL YOU.

IF YOU SEE THE AD HERE THEN THE TRUNK IS AVAILABLE. THE AD WILL BE TAKEN DOWN WITHIN 5 MINUTES OF THE ITEM BEING SOLD. THE PRICE IS NOT JACKED UP. THIS IS A VERY CHEAP PRICE FOR THE QUALITY TYPE TRUNK. THE PRICE IS FIRM. WHEN YOU WANT QUALITY ANTIQUES YOU HAVE TO PAY A LITTLE MORE FOR THEM.

THANK YOU
